Forest Earn Bonus Point At Oldham

Forest Earn Bonus Point At Oldham

There's no doubting that Oldham are the bogey team of Nottingham Forest. Two humiliating defeats last year are testament to that. So a point at their place can infact be seen as an improvement on past performances. You have to go back to October 1976 to find the last time we got anything from Boundary Park. That day, we also got a 0-0 draw.

This was an uninspiring performance from both sides, in a game that sounded like it had 0-0 written all over it from the KO. Before spending the entire afternoon and early evening at the QMC, I got a message via text saying Tyson out, Wilson on the bench and that Clingan was back. That was the last I heard about the game until the second half. The reason I hadn't heard anything was because nothing had happened. I found out it was still 0-0 by logging onto the Internet with the trusty mobile. After being informed 'you're not supposed to use that,' myself and the patient with tonsils the size of a football were whisked off to a ward for another three hour wait.

The corridors of the QMC as well as being vast and like a maze, are a dull and uninspiring place to sit, but better than sitting with society's misfits in the main reception. After a few moments, I could hear the dulcet tones of a familiar voice. It was only Colin Fray. Someone had left a radio on in one of the kitchens, but we were just a bit too far away to hear clearly. After getting up and moving closer, Colin gave the news that in the 50th min of the game Oldham had a corner and it was only the second one of the entire game. He also informed us that Swansea were continuing to beat Cheltenham 4-1. Top spot was looking decidedly doubtful to say the least.

Meanwhile the patient was no nearer getting seen to than the Reds were to getting a goal. Still 0-0 though, so we were'nt losing yet. Another wander towards the radio gave us the news that Crossley was getting a warm reception from the travelling fans. Nice that, only wished we were getting the same from the over worked and understaffed people at the QMC. Just a few minutes in the game were left, when the patient was taken away to be poked and prodded to find out what the problem was. I decided I didn't need to see the patient having things put in places I didn't want to see, so made my way to where I knew Colin would be just in time to get the end of the game. Unfortunately Colin had gone. Someone had not only switched off the radio, but removed it as well.

The patient was kept in overnight for observation, so it was back to the car and on with the radio as fast as I could to find out we scrapped for a point and had slipped down to second. It could have been worse I suppose, but all in all a very frustrating day on many fronts.
